Photo was shared in a gardening group but the plant not identified.
More than once I was told 'Poppy' but an image search of 'Poppy' never yields this bloom.

I'd like to have this in my garden.
Thank You!

Welcome! to ATP. I think the photo is showing a poppy bud. It will continue to split beyond what is shown and the poppy flower will emerge. Here's a link to poppy bud preparing to open into a full fledged poppy bloom:

I agree ... looks like the bud of Oriental Poppy (Papaver orientale)

It reminds me of an Iceland Poppy bud.

Here's a similar photo of a bud.

Can you show the opened flower bud?
